Parts of Japan's latest Street Fighter 5 tier list are wack, plus Granblue is getting away with a lot, and Dragon Ball FighterZ is making a comeback

We're back with quite a few topics to get to on this week's podcast, and the first of these is addresses the Street Fighter 5 tier list a few top Japanese players, Rohoto|Tokido, Mago, and RB|Gachikun, recently posted.

While a good bit of it does make plenty of sense, we just can't wrap our minds around some of the character placements these high level players have opined. G being outside of the top five and Ibuki ranking in the mid twenties are the most conspicuous examples, but there are even a few others beyond those.

Speaking of tier lists, Capcom Cup 2019 champion, iDom, has also posted a match up chart for Poison that we feel is worth digging into. Dragon Ball FighterZ had been fading a little into obscurity but turned that whole process around in just one weekend.

We're also nearing the start of the Street Fighter 5 Intel World Open and Capcom has yet to fix or even come out with a public game plan in regards to SF5's current online issues. We did hear, just today, that Capcom is still planning to make adjustments to the netcode, but our timeline is "soon" and the particulars are still a mystery.

We also discuss first hand experiences with the Street Fighter Amateur League as well as the respectable success Granblue Fantasy: Versus is currently seeing... despite having some issues that many players seem to be simply brushing under the rug.

Editor's note: There's a bit where Catalyst notes that Granblue Fantasy: Versus first day sales reached 150,000 in Japan. To clarify, this number counts sales from Japan as well as the rest of Asia. Also, this was recorded prior to Capcom's statement about an incoming netcode fix.
